  • A broad variety of interconnected automatic systems such as temperature control, multimedia systems, telecommunications, and security systems are used in smart buildings that are particularly sensitive to the effects of thunderstorms and lighting. As a result, any transient that enters the structure, not only through the power supply lines but also through the data lines, might harm a wide range of sensitive electronic equipment, including computers, alarm systems, transducers, PLCs, and audio-visual equipment. Networked components, on the other hand, are particularly vulnerable to lightning strikes and transients in general since they rely on a continual supply of power and data for their continued functioning and availability. 
  • Moreover, failure of equipment in a smart building could bring all interconnected systems to a halt, resulting in the breakdown of buildings and work environments, as well as the related expenses. These all can be eliminated or can be reduced by integrating powerful transient protection devices into the systems. Transient protection devices are also used in power management for smart equipment used in smart buildings.
